Earlier this year, it was announced that Halo Wars 2 would be getting a physical release for Windows 10. In addition to the announcement, Halo Wars: Definitive Edition was also announced and would be bundled with the release. However the only downside is that the game is only available via the Microsoft Store.
However the good news is that if you don’t fancy purchasing games from the Microsoft Store for whatever reason, you might soon be able to grab a copy of the game via Steam. This is according to a recent tweet by Gamecheat13 (via Game Rant) where he revealed that the game is most likely going to be available from Steam.

For those unfamiliar, Gamecheat13 is a Halo modder and data miner who has in the past been banned from Xbox Live after leaking the Halo Wars 2 soundtrack, so safe to say that he has a bit of notoriety when it comes to unannounced Halo news. Halo Wars: Definitive Edition is a port of the original Halo Wars game from back in 2009 which improved visuals and audio as well as the option of supporting 4K resolutions.
It will also come bundled with the original DLCs such as Limited Edition’s Fireball Warthog and Honor Guard Wraith. No word on when exactly it will be coming onto Steam, but Game Rant points out that the Halo World Championships are taking place this weekend which could be the perfect platform for Microsoft to make an announcement.
